The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the latest Pay TV operator, Telecom Satellite Television (TSTV), Bright Echefu weekend, disclosed that it would commence commercial sales of its decoders to Nigeria by November 1, 2017.
- The company would from Monday, deploy about 5,000 decoders to customers for free, and would also be installed for the customers to enable them to test the reception, services and claims of the company.
- The delay in the commercial deployment of decoders to customers was to prevent sabotage by unscrupulous elements who would want to frustrate the company.
- “We have not commenced commercial sales of our decoders because we are aware of the fact that we are running a business easily frustrated by competition.
- “We had applications from over 3,000 individuals who want to be our dealers, so far we have cleared about 750 of the dealers. We are currently conducting due diligence checks on our dealers. We do not want a situation where individuals posing as dealers buy up our decoders and go dump them somewhere.”
